Why do islands that are so similar have such different ecosystems?



  1. 0 Votes

    Even though some islands might seem similar, their climate might be different. Also the distance they are from large land masses might affect what kind of species diversity there is, and also how large the islands are may affect how quickly the species turnover rate is (extinction rate). These concepts are part of island biogeography. See the wikipedia page below for more details.
